Eagles CB Byron Maxwell could care less about criticism of poor play

Philadelphia Eagles cornerback Byron Maxwell prides himself on his “thick skin,” and he’s not bothered one bit by the national criticism he’s received for his poor play thus far in 2015. Thanks to a couple of decent seasons during his tenure with the Seattle Seahawks, Maxwell was a highly touted free agent who ended up signing a six-year, $63 million deal with Philly. Many...

Eagles’ Byron Maxwell says growing up in the South prepared him for criticism

Last offseason, cornerback Byron Maxwell spread his wings and flew from Seattle to Philadelphia and signed a $63 million contract to huddle with a new flock of birds. But as the Eagles' new corner prepares to try to cover Jets receiver Brandon Marshall this week at MetLife Stadium, Maxwell was flapping more than his feathers about his chilly reception in Philly after two games...

Byron Maxwell contract isn’t working out too well for Eagles

One of Chip Kelly’s big offseason acquisitions this past summer was veteran cornerback Byron Maxwell, who signed a six-year, $64 million that includes roughly $25 million in guaranteed money. How’s that working out for you, Chip? Simply put, Maxwell has been one of the worst defensive backs in the league through the first two weeks of the regular season. The former Seattle...

Three plays that show what Byron Maxwell brings to the Philadelphia Eagles

A lot of people seem to think that the Philadelphia Eagles overpaid for Byron Maxwell in free agency. Nevermind the fact that he was the best cornerback on the market in a bad year for cornerbacks, but that’s the perception among many analysts. Not I. My first love is the Seahawks and I’ve had the pleasure to see what Maxwell can do over the last few years, and I can say that...

Byron Maxwell Guarantees Eagles Will Play In Super Bowl 50

You have to admire the confidence of new Philadelphia Eagles defensive back Byron Maxwell. The Eagles have never won a Super Bowl despite having played in two, most recently in a 24-21 loss to the New England Patriots in Super Bowl XXXIX. Maxwell, a veteran of two Super Bowls as a member of the Seattle Seahawks, is pretty confident the Eagles will reach Super Bowl 50, so much so...

Philadelphia Eagles: Are past injuries of new players a concern?

On field stats make the replacements the Philadelphia Eagles signed for players such as LeSean McCoy, Trent Cole, Nick Foles, and Jeremy Maclin seem like equals. However, availability of the seven big name replacements makes hesitation to label this free agency period a success entirely valid. Byron Maxwell, Walter Thurmond III, Kiko Alonso, DeMarco Murray, Ryan Mathews, Miles Austin...

Seattle Seahawks: Who will be the Next Member of the Legion of Boom?

With free agency right around the corner, the Seattle Seahawks will have to make some tough decisions regarding personnel. The biggest Seahawks name hitting the market is cornerback Byron Maxwell. Maxwell, a 6th round pick from Clemson, has proven very good in Seattle’s aggressive defensive system. Although his performance has been great, Maxwell is going to be too expensive for...

Seattle Seahawks: Profiling the new corners

For the Seattle Seahawks, Legion of Boom’s starters are sources of inspiration and confidence. Their performance is almost a foregone conclusion before the game begins. They are the ideal four-man secondary. The guys behind them have a similar swagger. In past years, it was Byron Maxwell, Walter Thurmond and Jeremy Lane providing that extra talent in the nickel and dime packages...

Seattle Seahawks: Preseason loss doesn’t matter

I don’t care that last night’s preseason opener was a Super Bowl rematch between the Seattle Seahawks and Denver Broncos. I didn’t care about the Seahawks’ winning streak in the preseason getting snapped. The preseason means nothing. Nothing. In a given preseason game, the starting sides play a few series of real ball, and then they are taken out of the game to avoid injury...
